TDA Buddy Industrial manipulators are designed to assist in the process of efficiently and safely moving material and equipment into position in an industrial and/or manufacturing environment.

Our products are capable of handling materials that weigh only a few pounds up to ½ ton. They can hold something perfectly still, move it in 3D space — horizontally within a 10′ radius, vertically up to 64″, and rotate it 360 degrees. However you need to move it, hold it, or accurately place it, TDA Buddy gives you the ability to do it.

Our unique neutral balance system makes heavy parts virtually weightless, a child could lift heavy parts and glide them through space with no stress or strain. Your employees will be safer and able to move heavy parts by themselves.
